What we learn in Year 2:
This half term in maths, we will be working on our number skills including place value and addition and subtraction.
Literacy (Talk for Writing)
In Literacy this half term we will be exploring description through the story, 'The Papaya that Spoke'. This is a cumulative tale and we will be writing our own cumulative stories.
In our non-fiction writing, we will be writing diaries from the point of view of the farmer from the story!
This half term in RE we will be learning about 'beginnings'. We will explore the creation story and how new beginnings make us feel.
After this we will explore another faith: Judaism. We will focus on 'Shabbat' and find out lots about how Jewish people live their lives and pray.
Our final topic this half term will be signs and symbols. Here we will begin to explore the signs and symbols of Baptism.
In Science this half term, we will be learning about animals including humans! We will explore human and animal life cycles and find out about basic needs for survival. We will also be making bird feeders to check on throughout our topic!
In History this half term, we will be learning about three nurturing nurses! Florence Nightingale, Mary Seacole and Edith Cavell. We will find out about their lives, where they fit on a timeline and why they have made history.
Handwriting in Class 2
This is how each letter should be formed. We call the join going into the letter a 'launcher'. Your child does not need to join their handwriting yet, we will build up to this.
